Those who love their cricket and some Aussie culture, The Bradman’s Birthplace Museum is a must see.
The Bradman’s Birthplace is situated at 89 Adams Street, Cootamundra and is complimented by the Memorabilia Cottage at 87 Adams Street. It was the initiative of Cootamundra Shire Council to purchase and develop these sites for future generations.
Granny Scholz, the midwife who delivered "The greatest batsman the world has ever known" Sir Donald Bradman on 27th August 1908, operated a small private hospital in the front room of the house. The building was refurbished in 1991, and now his birthplace has been lovingly restored with the official opening on 23rd October 1992. The birthplace cottage contains memorabilia of Sir Don, of cricket and of the Cootamundra district.
The property next door to Bradman's Birthplace, called Memorabilia Cottage, contains a nostalgic display of curios, bric-a-brac and Australian memorabilia, much of which dates back to the era when Sir Donald Bradman was born.
This adjoining property houses a collection of memorabilia that is on loan to Council from Peter and Jenny Cash. They created the collection over a number of years and have painstakingly taken every opportunity to increase their collection. It is a great sight to see and will bring back many memories for most people.
